I Am Concerned About Paying for XOLAIR

There may be options to help you get the XOLAIR your doctor has prescribed. XOLAIR Access Solutions can refer you to patient assistance options.

Getting My Medicine

You might not be able to get XOLAIR right away. First, your doctor’s office or specialty pharmacy will have to check to make sure your health insurance plan covers your medicine. This is called a “benefits investigation.” They also might have to send some more information before your plan covers your medicine. This is called a “prior authorization.”

Enrolling in XOLAIR Access Solutions

  1. You fill out the Respiratory Patient Consent Form.
  2. You doctor fills out the Prescriber Service Form. You do not have to fill out anything on this form.
  3. Your doctor sends both of these forms to XOLAIR Access Solutions.

There are 3 ways to send us the Respiratory Patient Consent Form:

  • Complete it online at
  • Fill out a paper copy and fax or mail it to us (or give it to your doctor to do so)
  • Text a picture of the completed form to  (650) 877-1111

The Respiratory Patient Consent Form lets us discuss your health information with your doctor and your health insurance plan. We can’t work with you without a signed Respiratory Patient Consent Form.

You do not need to do anything else, but your doctor does. He or she needs to submit a form called the Prescriber Service Form. This form tells us your doctor wants to treat you with XOLAIR. Make sure your doctor has sent us the Prescriber Service Form so you get help from us.

You do not need to fill out anything on the Prescriber Service Form.

The Respiratory Patient Consent Form replaces the Patient Consent Form. The Patient Consent Form and the Respiratory Patient Consent Form are valid for 3 years in all states (except Maryland, where it is valid for 1 year).

If your Patient Consent Form is still valid, you do not need to fill out the Respiratory Patient Consent Form yet.

My Health Plan Denied Coverage for XOLAIR

If your health insurance plan will not cover XOLAIR, you and your doctor's office can file an appeal. Contact your doctor to ask if you should file an appeal.

We have resources to help you and your doctor file an appeal.

We have resources to help you and your doctor file an appeal. You or your doctor’s office has to file the appeal directly with your health insurance plan.

This depends on your health insurance plan. You should ask your plan directly about its process. Sometimes the appeals process is quick. However, it can take several months if you have to appeal several times.

My Insurance Might Change

If your insurance changes while you're taking XOLAIR, call us. We can help you understand your new coverage.

The Genentech Patient Foundation gives free Genentech medicine to people who don't have insurance coverage or who have financial concerns and meet certain eligibility criteria.

It is your and your doctor's responsibility to complete and submit all required paperwork to your health insurance plan. Genentech and Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation cannot guarantee your plan will cover any treatments.
